The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum is America’s first art museum dedicated to the work of a woman artist of international stature. This inaugral volume documents the initial collection in full colour, and adds insight into O’Keeffe’s significance in American and world art. Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986) was both a premier modernist and an inspiring woman. Works from all periods of her career – many never before reproduced – are included among the 86 colour plates, while black-and-white photographs document her extraordinary life. Issues such as O’Keeffe’s originality, the relationship between her life and her art, and the influence of American literary and artistic traditions on her work, are discussed in the essays by well-known art historians.
